Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

The Collected Stories
Grace Paley


All of Grace Paley’s classic stories in one volume. Paley’s quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language won her readers’ hearts and secured her place as one of America’s most accomplished short-story writers. Her stories are united by her signature interweaving of personal and political truths, her extraordinary capacity for empathy and her pointed depiction of the small and large events that make up daily life.

With an introduction by George Saunders.
